In this virtual event, ASUG members will get the first look at the results of our annual study of the attitudes, preferences, and plans of SAP customers across the U.S. and Canada. Plus, we’ll preview how we’re using those insights to drive our programming in 2021. Join ASUG CEO Geoff Scott, and Market Research Manager Carolyn Szczurek, as they discuss key trends we discovered this year, including:
- The current state of SAP S/4HANA projects and IT staffing
- The evolving influence of IT and LoB teams on project prioritization
- Which emerging technologies will affect organizations the most—and which won’t
- How IT shops are overcoming SAP integration challenges
